Well it looks like Hurricane Lane is about to slam into Mexico. I neither root for this Hurricane nor wish ill to the people of Mexico that will be impacted by this disaster, I wish them all well.
With BUGS's presence in Mexico through their SUB's, this could mean even more work for them. Many people do not realize that Hurricanes in Mexico=work for BUGS SUBS.
Will be interesting to see if people catch on or if the Company makes any statements regarding future revenues that are possible from this. Just something to think about.

CARLSBAD, Calif., Sep 20, 2006 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Sub-Surface Waste Management of Delaware, Inc. (SSWM, Trade), announced that its Mexico subsidiary company, Environmental Tec International, S.A. de C.V. (ETI), signed its $1.1 million subcontract agreement with the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) under a recently awarded new contract from the Federal Electricity Commission (C.F.E.). ETI will mobilize to one of the largest power generating plants in the south of Mexico, in Merida, Yucatan, at Nachi Cocom.
Bruce Beattie, CEO of SSWM, stated, "We are pleased to be able to start this important project after several delays were incurred in authorizing release of funds due to resolution of specific tasks in our scope of work. This facility was sited three years ago, by the office of Attorney General for the Protection of the Environment, for major violations of hydrocarbon contaminants and our successful completion of this project should substantially enhance ETI environmental presence in the Mexican Republic and lead to additional environmental clean-ups at other generating plants. We expect a second project for remediation at the Merida II plant to be awarded later this year which is anticipated to be twice the magnitude of work as compared to the facility at Nachi Cocom."
